The synthesis and characterisation of a series of ruthenium polypyridyl complexes containing pyridyltriazole ligands in different coordination modes are described. The electrochemical and electronic properties of the compounds with respect to the coordination mode of the pyridyltriazole ligand are reported. Upon photolysis of the complex containing the 1-methyl-3-(pyridin-2-yl)-1,2,4-triazole ligand, irreversible ligand isomerisation is observed.
